Simply written documents before the elders will not count for an actual divorce at all. You will have to go through a proper process for that as the second marriage is illegal since the first one is still valid. For 6 years your 1st husband has not talked to you. Therefore, you can take the ground of desertion (Factum Deserendi and Animus Deserendi) here if possible. you cannot file any case related to 498A or DV here. 

Kindly refer to a physical legal counsel for your case for a better expedition of this situation.

THanks Shreya for your reply.How to face  cases cheating and bigamy.Since my 1sta husband allready filed private complaint

amicably settlement is the only option you have

bigamy can be proved easily by that certificate

Marriage a second marrige during subsistence of a valid marriage is am offence of bigamy under IPC. Written agreement executed before elders is a null and void and nonest in eye of law and is not binding between the spouses. Try to settle the matter amicably without abusing process of law.
